MAYNARD SIMS: FLAME & other enigmatic tales

All pre-publication orders for A Bracelet of Bright Hair by Jane Jakeman have now been posted. As of today (17/10/11) there are just around a dozen or so copies left – so if you haven't ordered the Jakeman and want it then I urge you to buy your copy quickly to avoid disappointment. See earlier blog entry below (dated Friday 29 July 2011) or e-mail me for details.

I'm now pleased to announce details of our January 2012 title:

Maynard Sims: Flame & other enigmatic tales

Six darkly enigmatic and chilling stories make up Maynard Sims fourth Sarob Press collection – their first since Falling Into Heaven (2004). Here you will find two novellas – the sequel to their well-received novella “Moths” (see Echoes of Darkness) and a spooky tale of life and death – and what comes after – set in and around the variety theatre of the 1950s. There are also four shorter but no less haunting tales – one of which is a new “Dept 18” adventure. Five of the six stories are original to this collection and the sixth has been fully revised.
Len Maynard & Mick Sims are the authors of the novels Shelter, Demon Eyes, Black Cathedral and Night Souls and the Sarob Press collections Shadows At Midnight (1999), Echoes of Darkness (2000) and Falling Into Heaven (2004).
Stories: “Double Act” “Serenity” “Jealousy” “Assignment” “Fallen” & “Flame”
With an afterword by Maynard Sims. Illustrations by Paul Lowe.
Limited Edition Hardcover. Printed Boards. Edition limited to 150 hand numbered copies.
Limitation will be reviewed if pre-publication interest suggests a larger print run is appropriate.

2012 is shaping up to be an exciting year with (possibly) three further titles lined up – subject to contracts etc, etc – including – if all goes to plan – a new volume (number 8) in Richard Dalby's “Mistresses of the Macabre” series of collections by Victorian women ghost story writers. These have always proved to be very popular with early volumes (all 7 Sarob Press “mistresses” are long out of print) advertised at seriously frightening prices on the internet.

Cheers, Robert.
